What a "Grand" little book. This is a grandparent's wisdom for his grandson and covers all aspects of life. It is subtitled, A Grandparent's Wisdom for A Happy Life and if the little grandson is able to follow the prescription his grandfather offers, he will indeed be happy. I would say this book can be read by readers of all ages and like the author, readers can catch their children or grandchildren young and read the book with them as early as age five or six. This book has won many awards. Give it all the other awards that are available.
